Sample text

While many faculty members are enthusiastic about the possibility that assessment, rightly applied, can improve learning, others see it as an oppressive tool of administrators (and, sometimes, legislators) who seek to micromanage instruction, impose their own agenda, and/ or curry favor with voters by claiming to have brought accountability to higher education. Even faculty members whose attitudes toward the assessment of learning are warmer and more positive face the challenge of learning how to do such assessments well; few institutions have provided the professional development experiences and resources needed to help professors be successful in this endeavor.

The failure to accommodate such necessary and appropriate pluralism in assessing learning across a variety of disciplines has undermined the acceptance, adoption, and implementation of learning assessments in many institutions. In addition, some faculty members and administrators assert that it is difficult or impossible to measure important learning and/or that learning only becomes evident long after the undergraduate years have ended (when assessments done during college cannot observe and capture it).

As we gradually gain knowledge and greater experience of the physical and social world at any age and are 46 WE’RE LOSING OUR MINDS challenged about what we know and how we know it by parents, teachers, friends, and media, we grow in our capacity to understand relationships between ideas; between external objects; among ourselves and our parents, siblings, and friends; among individuals, including ourselves, and the larger community(s) in which we live; and among our own personal, internal identities.
